Frequently asked questions

What clients usually engage your M&A experience Consultants?

We work with clients from all over the world. Our clients range from enterprise and corporate clients to companies that are backed by Private Equity or Venture Capital funds. Furthermore, we work directly with Family Offices, Private Equity firms, and Asset Managers. Most of our enterprise clients have dedicated Corporate Development, M&A, and Strategy divisions which are utilizing our pool of M&A experience talent to add on-demand and flexible resources, expertise, or staff to their in-house team.

How is Fintalent different?

Fintalent is not a staffing agency. We are a community of best-in-class M&A experience professionals, highly specialized within their domains. We have streamlined the process of engaging the best M&A experience talent and are able to provide clients with M&A experience professionals within 48 hours of first engaging them. We believe that our platform provides more value for Corporates, Ventures, Private Equity and Venture Capital firms, and Family Offices.

Our Hiring Process – What do ‘Community-Approach’ and ‘Invite-to-Apply’ mean?

‘Invite-to-Apply’ is the process by which we shortlist candidates for the majority of projects on our platform. Often, due to the confidential nature of our clients’ projects, we do not release projects to our whole platform but using the matching technology and expertise of our internal team we select candidates who are the best fit for our clients’ needs. This approach also ensures engagement with our community of professionals on the Fintalent platform, and is a benefit both to our clients and independent professionals, as our freelancers have direct access to the roles best suited to their skills and are more likely to take an interest in a project if they have been sought out directly. In addition, if a member of our community is unavailable for a project but knows someone whose skill set perfectly fits the brief, they are able to invite them to apply for the role, utilizing the personal networks of each talent on our platform.

Which skills and expertise do your Fintalents have?

The Fintalents are hand-picked and vetted M&A experience professionals, speak over 55 languages, and have professional experience in all geographical markets. Our M&A experience consultants’ experience ranges from 3+ years as analysts at top investment banks and Strategy consultancies, to later career C-level executives. The average working experience is 6.9 years and 80% of all Fintalents range from 3-12 years into their careers.

Our M&A experience consultants have experience in leading firms as well as interfacing with clients and wider corporate structures and management. What makes our M&A experience talent pool stand out is the fact that they have technical backgrounds in over 2,900 industries.

How does the screening and onboarding of your M&A experience talent work?

Fintalent.io is an invite-only platform and we believe in the power of referrals and a closed-loop community. Members of our community are able to invite a small number of professionals onto the platform. In addition, our team actively scouts for the best talent who have experience in investment banking or have worked at a global top management consultancy. All of our community-referred talent and scouted talent are subject to a rigorous screening process. As such, over the last 18 months totaling more than 750 hours of onboarding calls, of which only 40% have received an invite-link after the call.

What happens if I am not satisfied with my M&A experience consultant’s work?

During your initial engagement with a member of our Fintalent talent pool with no risk. If you are not satisfied with the quality of your hire for any reason then we are able to find a replacement at short notice. There is no minimum commitment per project, but generally projects last at least 5 days and can last 12+ months.

We are a community-based M&A staffing platform.

Everything you need to know about M&A experience

What is M&A experience?

M&A experience, in financial markets, describes how many mergers and acquisitions (M&A) transactions are enacted. “Experience” as defined by Fintalent’s M&A experience consultants, means the number of M&As completed by a company or fund during a given period of time, usually one year or one trading day.

Experience is used broadly to measure a company’s ability to do M&As successfully. Experience is associated with a company’s valuation and used as a proxy for how successful M&As are in terms of valuations. For example, mid-cap companies that have experienced high valuations in the past often suffer subsequent declines.

Experience can also be seen as an indicator of a company’s success at raising funds from investors. Investors are willing to invest in companies with greater M&A experience as they may have had fewer issues with investments in these companies. This has the further effect of increasing their standing to win future M&A work.

Another measure of experience is first-mover advantage which measures how many transactions has a company done at their first attempt or as lead advisor. A successful bidder or underwriter is likely to have greater experience than a company that has not completed any transactions.

M&A experience can be used to measure the risk associated with an M&A transaction. For example, if the acquiring party has experience in a certain industry and size of acquisition, it would have learned lessons from previous deals and would be able to predict costs more accurately and make better estimates as regards how much pre-tax profits will boosted by synergies from the acquisition. This effect is known as first-mover advantage.

Experience can be used to measure the ability of a manager to pick winners from losers and how quickly they can pick up new skills in calculating future deals. When managers have gained experience of companies acquired, they are often able to identify better acquisitions than those suggested by inexperienced managers.

M&A experience is also associated with a company’s reputation for competency and professionalism in the market. A company with high experience is often perceived to be very good at handling transactions and are able to predict outcomes more accurately than new entrants. As a result, it becomes an attractive choice to investors as well as potential clients.

It can also be used in various parts of the deal process such as determining timing of a transaction and how it should be structured e.g. if a company has successfully bought or sold at least three companies of similar size in the past, the deal would be expected to run smoothly when one of these companies is acquired by another firm.
